    Arrow Body Piercing

    Ok so heres the discussion i wanna hear about.

    I am looking to get a naval piercing (belly button), but I want my freind to do it rather than getting it professionally done.

    I was wondering if we could discuss the risk of getting a body piercing done by an ameteur rather than a professional,

    risk of type of body jewelry used for a new piercing (specially belly button)

    tools used, procedure,

    and i like to hear about all your personal stories about your own body piercing whether it bein done by a porfessinal or not (and time its taking to heal)

    And itd be great if anyone can give links as how to the procedure of how its done along with information about caring for your new piercing.

    TAnKyU!!! ^^


    Oh, and i just wanna let you all know that the poll is a public poll...

    well there can be a 50/50% chance of you getting AIDS we don't want that to happen

    If you get it done by an amateur, well i rathre take the money and go get it done professionaly

    • you dont want to catch a disease.
    • you don't want to bleed to death.
    • he might have no fuc*ing clue what he doing

    so take the money and go to a pro ok !!!!
    Yeah, Bye.

    i know, thAts true,(oh and the one thats gonna perform the piercing is a girl, im a boy...)

    and i thinking of sterilizing the needle first by alchohol wipes, then putting it through flame to sterilize it.
    i am worried about how she's gonna place the piercing, and i can only hope she knows wut she is doing. (i guess im willing to take the risk)

    also i id get it professionaly done, but im not yet 18, and the fact im gettining a navel piercing, theres no way my dad would let me get it since im a boy.

    so im seriously considering letting her do it, only, i wanna make sure we do it right.

    also i think the risk might be the same if i get it with a professional, since one of my freinds had it done by a "profesional", but he messed up on hers, didnt pierce it deep enough, her body rejected the belly ring and tore apart, leaving an ugly scar.

    Re: Body Piercing

    Eww....well umm yeah thats the reason i would not get a belly button ring

    First, you should get your belly button pierced by a reputable piercing artist, with sterile equipment and quality navel rings. You shouldn't have a friend pierce your belly button, and you also shouldn't let anyone pierce your navel with a piercing gun, like the type they use to pierce your ears at the mall. You should go to a reputable piercing artist, someone who works at either a piercing studio or a tattoo and piercing studio. You should also make sure that the equipment and jewelry that they will be using is sterilized. At most piercing studios, this will be standard operating procedure, but definitely check into this before you get pierced.

    You also want to make sure that you've eaten something an hour or less before you get pierced. Eating before you get pierced helps lessen your chance of fainting from the pain. You also should not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol when you get pierced. For one thing, you want to be sure that you are making good decisions, and drugs or alcohol may impair your judgment. For another thing, alcohol thins your blood, making it a whole lot more likely that you will bleed heavily when you are pierced. Most piercing artists will refuse to pierce a person that they believe to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol for these very reasons.

    Your piercing artist will normally offer you a few choices for your initial jewelry. Some piercing artists will use a captive bead ring (CBR), but a curved barbell belly button ring is a much more common choice, and tends to work better for the healing of your belly button piercing. Most piercing artists will also steer you away from anything too heavy for your initial jewelry, as heavier jewelry should only be worn with a healed navel piercing. In terms of materials, the standard is typically surgical steel, but there are a few other options offered at some piercing studios. If you are allergic to any metals, it's definitely a good idea to discuss this with your piercing artist. They may suggest that you only wear the more expensive 14k Real Gold Belly Button Rings.

    When it comes time for the actual piercing, your piercing artist will clean your skin around your belly button and mark the outside and inside of your belly button with a marker or pen, and ask you if the positioning is what you want. Take your time and make sure that the dots are in the location where you envision your jewelry going through your belly button. After the dots are in the right spot, you will lie down on your back, and your piercing artist will put a clamp on the skin that is about to be pierced. Many people say that the clamp is actually more painful than the piercing itself, but that is certainly debatable.

    The piercing is accomplished by putting a pretty substantial needle through the skin of your navel; the good news is that you won't see it happening. There will be some pain involved, of course, but the pain is tolerable for most people. There is also inevitably going to be some bleeding involved with the piercing, and your piercing artist will work to get the bleeding to stop or slow to the point where it has virtually stopped. It is entirely possible that the bleeding may restart after you leave the piercing studio, as your new piercing is a wound at this point. Just be sure to clean the blood off with a clean, disposable substance (cotton gauze is a good choice), and be as gentle as you can with your new piercing. Be sure to listen to any aftercare instructions that your piercing artist gives you, or, better yet, get a written instruction sheet for aftercare.

    Re: Body Piercing

    I would rather get my piercings done professionally rather than have a friend do it, unless they know how to sterilize the equipment well enough like a professional.

    I got my nose done professionally and I am glad I did. I would never let a friend do it as there is more change of infection and that would result it going to the hospital to have removed.
